Project #38727 - critical review

Critique the article(will send).

1500words include relevant scholary sources (the more the better).


Identify and list all the key arguments being made in the article. In other words 

identify what it is the author is saying or claiming. There is probably a central thesis 

(argument) and other arguments.

ï‚· Select a relevant and comprehensive critique framework. Such a framework is a list 

of questions to be applied to your article when doing a rigorous critical review. These 

critique frameworks can be found on university websites and other sources for 

critically reviewing a scholarly article.

ï‚· Use on-line searches to locate suitable articles. You need to identify your topic and 

do key word searches to trawl for relevant literature.

ï‚· An obvious part of the critique framework to incorporate literature is to do it in a 

section of the critique framework that deals with argument. Here you can say what 

the author argues and compare contrast it against what other writers claim.

ï‚· The way you critique the author’s arguments is by looking at what other authors 

have said about what your author is saying. You do not critique arguments based on 

your own personal view because you are not an authority in the field.

ï‚· Some teams say what the author says then just cite literature that may or may not 

be relevant – the literature just seems to be incorporated for the sake of showing we found some articles. You should round-out the use of literature in examining author 

arguments by indicating what the work of outside authors (literature) means in 

terms of your critique of author claims. Based on the literature you have cited in 

relation to an author argument, what bearing does this have for the critique of that 

argument or the reading in general? For example, are the claims made by your 

author, cutting edge, out dated, inappropriate, flawed, plausible, invalid, lacking in 

some aspect, supported by others, rejected by others, questioned, cited by others, 

acknowledged by others etc. Here again, is a basic formula for how to round-out 

your critique of particular arguments: 1. Our author says such and such; 2. However 

these other authors have a different view; 3. Therefore this is what we make of what 

our author is saying – our authors argument is _______________.

ï‚· You should be mainly citing scholarly works not newspaper type articles.

ï‚· Do not rely on convenience research e.g. Google, using your unit textbooks etc.

ï‚· You should be citing a considerable amount of literature and multiple citations are 

one way of covering many authors.

ï‚· You should be referring to author’s ideas not articles.

ï‚· Acknowledge the work of other authors so we know the difference between what 

your ideas are and what belongs to others.

ï‚· When incorporating other works to examine what your author is saying compared to 

what other authors are saying do not solely rely on quotes. Some teams do this and 

it becomes monotonous. When referring to literature you do not have to just use 

quotes. For instance, without relying on quotes, you could say something like: “Our 

author is of the opinion that ________________. However, other authors – Brown 

2010, Jones, 2007 and Wong et al 2012 - have a completely opposite view that 

suggests _______________. The up-shot of this contrast is that our author (FOR 

EXAMPLE ONLY) has probably not considered some key research findings into the 

reading. Therefore, there is a limitation or problem concerning this aspect of the 


ï‚· Remember the task is to critique arguments made in the article not to compare your 

article with a few others.
